Damn dude, shoulda just hit up a JY. Last time there I picked up a few spare Swaybar link bolts, since my disconnects are a t-55, wrench and zipties. Cost the price of admission

XJ90 - Being 2wd probably gives you about a 1mpg advantage. With that kind of mileage, it sounds like you've got the efficient driving thing covered!

On topic, I installed the new water pump and took it for a test drive.

First post over here in ZJ territory.

Last week I replaced the rear main and oil pan gasket as well as tightened the valve cover bolts. That fixed the oil leaks until the oil pressure sender decided to crap out yesterday. Got the joy of replacing that sucker today. Great place to hide it huh? Didnt have a socket or wrench to fit it, good ol vice grips saved the day again.

By the way my full time 4wd V8 ZJ just got about 22.5 MPG out of the last tank of fuel. That was mostly city with a bit of back highway (50 MPH) driving. I wasnt easy on it either. She scoots almost as well as my 5.2 YJ.

90 YJ 5.2 Magnum, AX-15, 231 SYE'd
D44 front, welded/trussed AMC20HD rear. 4.56 gears soonish.

Changed passenger side rear axle bearing and seal on the Wife's ZJ. Nice not needing a press for the bearing install.

flushed and burped the cooling system, built a box unit in the back to keep my crap from bouncing around. Just need to carpet it and fit the latch then all is well.
